Presbyterian Disaster Assistance responds to earthquake disaster in Nepal
Thousands are dead or injured from the massive earthquake and aftershocks that shook Nepal and neighboring countries on April 25. The quake, the worst in more than 80 years, struck just west of the capital of Kathmandu and destroyed towns and mountainous villages. The government of Nepal has officially requested international assistance and declared a state of emergency.
Presbyterian Disaster Asistance (PDA) is providing emergency relief and short-term recovery in the impacted areas with our partner ACT Alliance, and its members who are already on the ground. PDA will remain active through the long term recovery, accompanying our partners in the area as they determine long-term program needs and providing financial support for rebuilding and resilience.
The needs for the response will be great. God’s people are once again called on to stand in the “GAP” – Give. Act. Pray.
Financial support by churches can be sent to the Presbytery Office. Please mark “DR999999 Nepal” in the memo line of the check or accompanying note.
